Patient Reviews
Feb 12, 2021
Life Changing!!! I first met Dr. Bethel in 2002 when nobody would operate on me for my back. The pain was unbearable & I had other health issues going on. He looked at me & said "Marcie, WE can do this!!!" I was operated on Sept 11, 2002. His commitment to me, making me better & finally getting me out of pain, changed my life! In 2016, I felt something blow in my neck & went to the emergency room several times from unbearable pain. I called Dr. Bethel & said "I need you, NOWWWW!" I was seen immediately & within several days he did successful fusion surgery on me. I pray I don't need to see him again w/ a problem, but I will always be grateful for his magnificent care & the brilliant man, he surely is!!! (he will always remember me as the one that was so grateful, I gave him a "thank you" letter to give his mother, from me!) *All true!
